Don’t just throw out your old cellphones, laptops, desktops or other electronics, including old TVs. Recycle them to save NYC landfills from potentially hazardous waste, and let skilled recyclers save precious metals for re-use. The Lower East Side Ecology Center is sponsoring e-cycling events in all five boroughs on weekends in September and October.
Bring in your unwanted gear and have a chance to win a $20 coupon courtesy of event series sponsor Tekserve.
All 2015 Fall E-Waste collection events are 10 AM to 4 PM rain or shine, so let’s hope for shine.
